Life can be pretty boring if you're not passionate about something. Here at Lumière we have found the perfect solution. For just €20, the Lumière passie will give you €2 discount on your cinema ticket and you benefit from exclusive special deals and film events for an entire year. With your Lumière passie you support Lumière so that we can continue to present the most special, stimulating, and unforgettable films. More information about the Lumière passie.


Would you like to give the gift of Lumière? You can! Our ticket desk sells gift vouchers for the cinema, a film breakfast, and the restaurant to the value of €5, €10, and €20. You can also combine these vouchers. Unfortunately, our gift vouchers are not yet available for purchase online.

Lumière cinema vouchers can also be purchased at the tourist information office (VVV).


To ensure the best possible cinema experience, we have drawn up the following rules:

  • No tickets will be sold for films after they have started (start times can be found on the website).
  • The auditorium will open ten to fifteen minutes before the film starts. This gives you plenty of time to find a seat.
  • Food is not permitted in the auditoriums so as not to disturb or inconvenience other guests.
  • Please do not use your mobile phone during the film.

Lumière adheres to the national agreements pertaining to the audience suitability rating (film classifications/age certificates). According to the law, children younger than 16 will not be granted access to a film with a minimum age of 16 (even if they are accompanied by an adult). Identification may be requested. Children will only be granted access to films with other age limits if they are accompanied by an adult.


You can use the Cineville card to see as many films as you like at Lumière. Enjoy unlimited access to all of our regular films, premières, and sneak previews for just €19.95 per month. The Cineville card is valid in more than forty cinemas in the Netherlands. It also gives you access to dozens of film festivals, such as Imagine, Holland Animation Film Festival, Go Short, and Movies that Matter. 

You can order your card via Cineville. The temporary card you will receive by e-mail can be used immediately, which means you could head to the cinema the very same day. Your official card will be sent to your home address within two weeks. This card makes a great gift. All cards have a minimum subscription period of four months, after which it can be cancelled monthly.
